Monday’s Office Gossip

Monday, March 7, 2011

Good Morning Dear Readers! Good week’s start for you all!

Before going to the Office Space that took my breath away… I’d love you to watch this video, to start our week with the proper Decó Glorious mood…

E- Buen día mis Queridos Lectores! Buen comienzo de semana para todos! Antes de pasar a la oficina que me cortó la respiración, me encantaría que miraran este video. Digo, para empezar la semana con el apropiado y glorioso mood Decó…

Didn’t you love the charming, feminine, elegant and cozy living room? And the master-bedroom? Such a beautiful, relaxed and chic space! I must confess, I’m a huge fan of Ana Cristina Antunes Decó Style! And what can I say about Gustavo Santos? When I saw him holding and kissing María da Gracia, the owner of the apartment, he stole my heart. What they do at Querido, Mudei a Casa!, the Portuguese version of Extreme Makeover, is fantastic and touching! The minute you watch them, you inevitably love them!

E- No les encantó ese living room tan femenino, elegante y acogedor? Y el cuarto? Qué espacio más precioso, sereno y chic! Tengo que confesarlo, soy re fan del estilo Decó de Ana Cristina Antunes! Y qué puedo decir de Gustavo Santos? Cuando lo ví abrazando y dándole un beso a María da Gracia, la dueña del depa, me robó el corazón. Lo que hacen en Querido, Mudei a Casa!, la versión Portuguesa de Extreme Makeover, es fantástico y conmovedor!. Desde el minuto en que los ves, inevitablemente los amás!


Yes, I know what you’re thinking and feeling while looking at this picture. (I love him too) / Si, sé lo que están pensando y sintiendo al ver esta foto. (Yo también lo amo)

Before I beat around the bush and start talking about this writer and actor… let’s go back to the main essence of this Blog and Post (focus Maca, focus) and let’s delight our eyes with the above pic.. the following pictures. Get ready for what’s coming …

E- Antes que me vaya por las ramas y empiece a hablar de este escritor y actor… volvamos a la escencia principal de este Blog y de este Post (foco Maca, foco) y deleitémonos con la imágen de arri… con las siguientes imágenes. Prepárense para lo que viene….


Yes! You guessed right! This uber posh office belongs to Ana Antunes, actually, it’s her Showroom Office in Chiado, Lisbon’s fashion district. Every single detail of this office is lovely! The stripes, the lanterns, the division panels, the Decó Style and the color palette. Anita: you deserve a standing ovation!

E- Sip! Adivinaron! Esta oficina ultra posh pertenece a Ana Antunes, de hecho, es su Showrroom Office en Chiado, el distrito de moda de Lisboa. Cada detalle de la ofi es adorable! Las rayas, los fanales, los paneles de división, el estilo Decó y la paleta de colores. Anita: te merecés una ovación de pie!

I’m particularly delighted with one item, popping up several times in this office:

Enchanting ceramic stools. Mind them, they’re trendy Chinoiserie. / Estoy particularmente encantada con un item que se repite varias veces en la oficina: estas encantadoras banquetas de cerámica. Ténganlas en cuenta, son Chinoiserie de tendencia.


I just have to say it: I love this room and I can totally picture the Priest’s face when I explain him I don’t want to confess, instead I want to inquire about the Church’s furniture vendors. / Tengo que decirlo: me encanta esta habitación y me puedo imaginar perfectamente la cara del sacerdote cuando le explique que no me quiero confesar, sinó prenguntarle sobre los proveedores de mobiliario de la Iglesia.

Now listen you guys, before wasting your time with posts about puppies, cupcakes or girls holding balloons, you better go straight to Ana’s Blog and learn some accurate lessons in Decó.

E- Ahora atención todos, antes de perder el tiempo con posts sobre cachorros, cupcakes o chicas sosteniendo globos, mejor vayan directo al Blog de Ana para aprender adecuadas lecciones en Decó.


Needless to say that you ought to Follow it. / No hace falta decir que tienen que seguirlo.


Regarding myself, I’m thinking about a visit to Sanborns to inquire for this book:


The Dance of Life by Gustavo Santos. I wonder if he has a Blog… (Let me know ‘cause I can’t find it on Google)

E- En lo que a mi respecta, estoy pensando en darme una vuelta por Sanborns para ver si está este libro. La Danza de la Vida de Gustavo Santos. Me pregunto si tendrá Blog… (Avísenme porque no puedo encontrarlo en Google)

Excellent Week for all!

Looooove the office. I would either get a lot of work done since it's so clean and inspiring, or I would not get a lot of work done since I would be to busy admiring everything.
